[Discourse.ros.org] What would you include in a dream shop to prototype electronics side of ROS platforms?

Nikolaus Demmel via ros-users


Hello, I am working to build a dream shop for prototyping a ROS-based robotics platform.  Thus far, I have quite a bit of mechanical tooling (shop pic here - Bridgeport Mill with Easson ES-12C DRO, Hardinge DV59 Lathe, Miller 211 MIG, Miller 180 TIG, Hypertherm Powermax45 Plasma cutter) <img src="/uploads/ros/original/1X/3682f30f1cbce00d84b09c805f7674ff2277c139.JPG" width="690" height="434">.  Now, I am trying to build out the electronics prototyping side so that our team can have anything needed on hand to wire up things like the Raspberry Pi 3 to motor controllers and encoders, repair things on the fly, etc.

What must have tools would you have in your dream shop for wiring robotics platforms?

Hi there,

Your mech shop looks great!  For a prototyping electronics shop I would make sure to have:

1. A good soldering station, [Weller](https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.amazon.com/Weller-WESD51-Digital-Soldering-Station/dp/B000ARU9PO&ved=0ahUKEwjZ_ozA1bHUAhXCKyYKHS0XDuYQFghsMAI&usg=AFQjCNGcHLdsO4Xn5Y_RYazmsorq47sEQA&sig2=x7vNcrH0YafNagrYd51WuQ) makes great ones.  Make sure to get solder and flux too
3. A heat gun to apply shrink wrap, etc
4. Wires and shrink wrap
5. Header pin [crimpable connectors](https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.amazon.com/Haobase-2-54mm-Single-Headers-Connector/dp/B01DLXG6B4&ved=0ahUKEwiqjZiz17HUAhXFPiYKHU3DCs0QFgg6MAE&usg=AFQjCNGLlUs1-b9mch59OG9C_9q2hyAcRA&sig2=2ivs8-AEz04Kq0BHm_T4Aw)
6. The crimper for those connectors
7. A logic analyzer, [saleae](https://www.saleae.com/zh) makes great ones
8. An O-Scope, there are tons but they vary a lot in price
9. Anti-static mats
10. Nice multimeters

Good luck to you and your team

A solid workstation with a CAD program that can export to both URDF and a 3D printer.
